On behalf of millions of Argentine football fans across the world, we are starting this signature campaign for the future of our beloved team.

We have been witnessing from many recent years that all past and present coaches of the Argentina National Team are calling-up only a specific group of players into the team. These players are generally 1987-88-89 borns (primarily the youth World Cup 2007 winning team). We don't have anything against these players, infact, we appreciate the sacrifices and efforts they have made for the NT for years but they have done their best now. These guys have played 3 major finals in the recent past and failed in all of them. Argentina NT is trophy less for last 24 years, its incredible! It's not that we have dearth of talent in the nation but our coaches seem to be affected by acute selection myopia - they simply can't see beyond certain 'specific' names! These  specific names are now becoming bigger than the team itself. They're superstars for their respective clubs globally but never play good football for the NT. Our coaches, as mentioned earlier, are not including young talent into the team, players who are desperate to play and win for Argentina unlike these 'galacticos'. We have young talents like Mauro Icardi, Manuel Lanzini, Leandro Paredes etc who can just walk into any NT of the world but not Argentina! Is there some sort of cartel which has been formed inside the dressing room? Or, is there a political lobby of players who want to see the same guys around again and again? Or, they're just afraid of change and lost all boldness? We don't know! But we want to change this trend.

We want inclusion of youth in the NT now, so that future of Argentina football can be saved. By the time, FIFA World Cup in Russia arrives 80% of the current team members will be more than 30! Do you guys believe we can win a tough competition like a World Cup relying on old legs and mentality full of baggage-of-failure? We all must sign this petition so that we can ring some sort of alarm in the deaf ears of AFA officials , coaches and even the Argentina president!

Please come forward and help save Argentina football.
